Come join us on to celebrate the fact that the TCS campus is a nationally accredited arboretum. The event is on Thursday, April 25, from 10:30 to 11:00 outside of the elementary school.

How did this happen you may ask? Mr. Wiener, Bible teacher, chapel coordinator and “tree guy”, started last summer by mapping the location, naming and photographing every tree on campus. He applied to ArbNet, the national arboretum accrediting organization, for arboretum status for our school. We were accepted at the end of March.

Special recognition will be given at the event to the man who planted almost every tree at Timothy: John Harkema. For 56 years he has been consistently planting trees all over our grounds. And because of him, we have over 60 different varieties of trees on our 26 acres.
